“Cultura Impura” is the second album from half-Brazilian, half-British, London based purveyors of Afro-Brazilian funk, Saravah Soul. This vibrant record sees the band channelling 60s Brazil via 21st century East London.

The first single “Alforria” talks about freedom and immigration based on the real experiences of Nascarella when he was refused entry into the UK. Elsewhere on the album you’ll find Ethiopian melodies pushed up against an old school soul rhythm section, psychedelic carnival sounds with afro-beat and even a gutsy frevo version of Jimi Hendrix’ immortal hit, “Fire”. By mixing the traditional Afro-Brazilian rhythms like jongo and coco, and instruments like pifano (bamboo flutes), afoxé and berimbau, with highlife and afro-beat, along with the down-to-earth nitty-gritty of their own life experiences, Saravah Soul conjure something totally new and fresh.

Between them the Saravah Soul members’ extra-curricular activities have seen them play with the cream of the world’s musical talent, including Kylie Minogue, Heliocentrics, Jazzinho, QSO, and many more.
